Run it. If you still can't get to the update site, reinstall IE6 and try it again. Let us know. It would also help if you could give us the exact error message.
and life goes on...
I get an error page when I try to access Microsoft's Update site that says I need to install IE5---I have had IE 6 as long as it has been available--What am I doing wrong?
